The boys and girls in Junior Infants are busy working and learning as much as they can about the vets these days! We have a fully functional vets surgery in the classroom and we get to play in groups everyday there! Everyone gets to take turns at being a vet, a receptionist , a pet owner or a vet’s nurse! We love to play and we are learning so much!!

Miss Murphy and her 24 aspiring vets had the pleasure of visiting the well pet hospital.

A huge thank you to Darren, Susi and all their team who gave us such a huge warm welcome.

So here we are waiting to go in.

The reception area at the well pet hosital.

We listened to the receptionist take all the important details of pet and the injuries.

They even have a junior vet clinic. We had great fun in this area.

Some of us sat in the cat waiting area. They keep the cats and dogs in different areas…just incase!

Here is Darren, in the Dog Waiting area with a patient and their owner. We hope this dog is better soon. He was so well behaved.

We got to listen to Chewy’s heartbeat. It sounded “kinda weird” according to this young “vet”!

Chewy was in the dog’s consulation room. The cats have their own consultation room.

There were no cats in the surgery when we arrived so we used a toy one.

We saw the pre theatre/treatment room. In this room, the pets are prepared for theatre or procedures are carried out. They even had a bath for the pets!

Darrren showed us some of the equipment that he uses.

Next it was off to the operating theatre.

We got to see the X-ray machine and try on the lead gloves! They were just a bit heavy.

 

we meet 3 dogs who had to stay over night in the vets. They were very happy to see us.

This is the cat ward. They have different doors on their crates than the dogs.

Do you know why? We do!

 

Thank you to all at the well pet hospital who gave the children a wonderful experience at the pet hospital today. It is something they will remember for ever.

The Receptionist was busy answering the phone and filling out the customer’s pet form.

 

 

The other customers were in the waiting area. The vet was busy today.

 

 

 

This customer was brought into the vet where the vet examined the puppy.We are waiting on the results.

 

 

This dog is on a drip as he had an operation to remove a stone that was in his belly. The drip has antibotics in it. He has to stay lying down on his back.( just incase the stitches open)

 

This poor dog had heart surgery. The vet discovered a hole in his heart when he took an x-ray of his body. He has to have an oxygen mask on to help him with his breathing. He is also on a drip. Keep tuned in for an update on the poor pets.

 

Finally the vet filled in the pet’s form. He filled in all the treatments and procedures carried out. The receptionist will give the bill to the owners!
